Join us for our annual Lights of Love celebration at Newport Minster, to remember and pay tribute to loved ones this Christmas.
Throughout December, a series of services around the Island will enable us to come together to remember those people in our lives who have died. A number of events will take place in churches and other venues, including this event at Newport Minster at 7pm on Friday 2 December.
This year, we will also be holding the main Lights of Love event at Earl Mountbatten Hospice at 4pm on Sunday 4 December. We will gather and sing Christmas carols around the Remembrance Tree, which will be lit in memory of the thousands of people who are loved and missed by their families and friends.
